For the hearing impaired, no worries, it’s captioned.

Indeed, Mr. Lavrov, indeed!

Speaking of, well, the topic.  Here’s a never Trump site bemoaning the, well, p###ies in the Repub party, who was supporting Trump, withdrew their support, called for him to step down and whatnot, and, now, are back to backing Trump.

I find this odd.  There are people who truly believe Trump is going to destroy the Repub party.  I don’t disagree that the Repub party is on the verge of collapse.  But, anyone with any sense would know Trump is a symptom, not a cause. 

Why is the party on the verge of a collapse?  Because dimwitted people who will automatically support the mentioned weasels.  Well, read this …..

Weak GOP Leaders Can’t Keep Their Word, Forced to Jump Back On the Trump Train

It is amazing to watch the GOP leadership in Washington, D.C. squeal when they’re faced with the least bit of adversity.  

On Friday night, the ‘left’ launched a surprise attack that sent the elite media and elite politicians into scapegoating frenzy.  Paul Ryan disinvited Republican nominee Donald Trump from a campaign fundraiser, Sen. Deb Fischer said it would be wise for him to step down, and Rep. Bradley Byrne and Sen. John Thune also told the nominee to step aside.  

And now what?

You guessed it.  These establishment politicians are re-evaluating their professional political careers and are now re-endorsing Donald Trump.

The comments made by Mr. Trump were disgusting and totally unacceptable under any circumstance. (1/2)

— Deb Fischer (@DebFischerNE) October 8, 2016

It would be wise for him to step aside and allow Mike Pence to serve as our party’s nominee. (2/2)

— Deb Fischer (@DebFischerNE) October 8, 2016

Donald Trump should withdraw and Mike Pence should be our nominee effective immediately.

— Senator John Thune (@SenJohnThune) October 8, 2016

Byrne, in his Saturday statement, said Trump “cannot defeat” Clinton and urged him to “step aside and allow” Pence, the Indiana governor, to “lead the Republican ticket.”

But after Sunday’s debate performance and a not so friendly conference call between GOP leaders Monday morning, these three politicians have decided to retreat.

Fischer has since “clarified” her statements saying “I support the Republican ticket, and it’s a Trump-Pence ticket.”

A spokesperson for Byrne has since said that “he will support the Republican ticket on Election Day, as he has pledged to do all along.”

And during an interview with a South Dakota newspaper, Thune said he is voting for Donald Trump.  “He has a lot of work to do, I think, to win this election. But I’m certainly not going to vote for Hillary Clinton,” the Republican said.

This is Washington, D.C. folks, plain and simple.  These are the men and women who represent your bests interests, with fierce loyalty and devotion. 

Now, mind you, Townhall has becoming increasingly Never Trump for months, now.  The biggest argument they’ve had is because the Trump movement threatens to tear up the GOP.  Those three idiots they wrote about are exemplar as to why this is happening.  It isn’t Trump making these weasels, weasels.  They are weasels and they helped create Trump. 

It’s beyond interesting.  There are supposed “conservative” sites who are Never Trump sites.  And, they bemoan the fact that the GOP is having such a hard time with Trump.  Is Trump a conservative?  Well, no, he’s not.  He has some conservative attributes, but, he isn’t a conservative.  But, then, neither is the GOP leadership.  Sure, many in the GOP give lip service to being conservative because of the geography of their constituency.  But, actions speak louder than words.  Over the last 22 years, the GOP has held the House for 18 of those years.  The GOP has held the Senate for 12 of those years, all them overlapping with the House majority years.  8 of those years a Repub held the White House.  But, it would be hard to state that in any of those 22 years that our government became more conservative.  Indeed, over the past 22 years we’ve seen nothing but a complete devolution in conservative governance.  I believe this is inarguable.  If one is truly conservative, why would one wish the GOP to remain as is?  Do they actually believe that if the GOP had nominated Bush that we’d somehow be better off if he was elected?  That the GOP would suddenly be true to their words?  That the GOP would suddenly be more conservative?

Look, I get it.  There are some who simply despise Trump.  But, let’s not pretend that Trump is the one tearing up the GOP.  I’ll tell you who is tearing up the GOP, it’s the GOP leadership ……. and they need torn asunder.  People in Kansas are sick of them.  People in Utah are sick of them.  People in Florida are sick of them (well, many of them), people in Oklahoma are sick of them.  People in West Virginia are sick of them.  They don’t care.  They don’t care because the GOP, year in and year out, failed to deliver what they promised.  And, they continue to fail, even against a lame-ass lame-duck presidency.  Are you kidding me?  The GOP holds both houses and the only veto override they can manage is some law about suing Saudi?  That’s it?  For 22 years they’ve held a strong hand.  For 22 years they still can’t play the  hand.  Heck, for 8 of those years they held 3 aces playing 3 card poker, and still managed to lose. 

You guys go ahead and keep cheering for Trump to fail.  Bitterly cling to your precious GOP, and keep pretending the GOP is in some sort of opposition to the Dims.  Self-delusion works for leftards, it may as well work for you guys. 

Again, Mr. Lavrov, spot on!

  1. Trump at least seems to have the will to move the needle back toward Conservatism in those places where he overlaps into it. If ‘our’ politicians don’t start counterpunching against the Lib’s extreme moves to the left, then….well, my understanding is that bullets take forever to get weak.

      Right. I was looking at it in a different angle. It seems to me some “conservative” outlets seem to believe the Repub voters owe some sort of loyalty to the establishment GOP. It’s fascinating because their bread and butter was from people dissatisfied with the establishment GOP. Now, they seem angry. ……. BTW, a NYTimes hit piece is about to hit national news if it hasn’t already. I think the leftards waited too long.

    The GOP will live or die with Trump – but not because of him. You are correct, he is the symptom not the cause. If he wins, his victory will remake the republican party. More than just conservatism, the base wants honesty – tell us what you are going to do. Do not tell us you are going to do A and then do B. And if you cannot do that, we have no use for you. It does not matter if Hillary is elected if you are going to act as her super majority. And I do not care what you perceive the press doing. We know it is rotten. It will blame you for all ills even if you are an impotent minority. Which you already have resigned yourself to be.

    The GOP as we know it today died years ago. If they intend to survive, they better start listening to their base. The only ones they are listening to right now is the media, and it is out to destroy them.

    I have said this before, and it is even more true today. It is time for a third party. What difference does it make to keep electing republicans that are going to vote the democrat agenda? You might as well elect democrats.

    • Almost everything ‘we’ (conservatives) know about this entire nation died years ago. Not just the GOP. Trump just happened to be the one who came along and made it obvious that politics isn’t going to be what brings it back.

    The GOP has been giving the left little bits forever….chipping away at conservatism and capitalism

    But…isn’t that the way it’s written in the liberal playbook?

    • cdquarles says:

      Funny thing is, though, the GOP gave us Harding/Coolidge and Ronald Reagan; which is a bit ironic since the GOP rose from the ashes of the Whigs as a full-throated anti-slavery party. The GOPe hated Goldwater. The GOPe hated Coolidge and Reagan, too. The GOPe has been Progressive (aka Bull Moose) since the last days of the 19th Century. The GOP rank-and-file, though has always been more traditional values oriented (aka Christian morals and Western culture derived from Christian morals). Still, organizations are what the members make them. The Democrats, though, have been statist since Andrew Jackson. How JFK slipped through, I’ll never know ;p.

      • philjourdan says:

        CD, you bring up a very important point that perhaps most here are too young to remember. Republican is not synonymous with conservative. Back in the 60s and 70s (for those of us old enough to remember), Democrats could be just as conservative – Anyone remember Scoop Jackson? Or even JFK. Back in those days, the parties were divided along lines of what to do about Russia (the GOP eventually won). So those today screaming for the GOP to go back to its base do not realize conservatives adopted republicans (The election of 72 was perhaps the defining one that separated the 2 parties into conservative and liberal), not the other way around.

        It is also why I detest the term RINO (that is only appropriate in rare cases such as Meg Whitman and John Warner). Liberal Republicans are NOT RINOs. they are not conservatives, but they are not RINOs either.

        If conservatives want their own party, it is very apparent that hijacking one of the majors is not doing to work. And whether they realize it today, or in 20 years, it will be the same. You want a conservative party? Create it. And at least in the early years, you are going to get a lot of help from the democrats as they see it as an easy way to kill the GOP – which should be dead now anyway.

        • cdquarles says:

          Hmm, interestingly, I’d say 1968 was when the shift happened. After 1968, the “New” Left took over the Democrats and that’s how McGovern got it in 1972. As a Southerner, I saw that shift happen before my eyes. The “New” Left made the more conservative elements of the Democrat party either move Left or jump ship. Those that died were replaced by more ‘radical’, in the Alinsky sense, “Progressives”. Locally, the people didn’t like the way the “New” Left operated and, so, the local Republicans started recruiting them. By the 1980s, Republicans were winning governor’s races and, some 10 or so years later, were winning legislative majorities. George Wallace was prescient in some ways. [No, he was not racist nor a segregationist. His predecessor was both. He played the media for all it was worth to get in a position to lead and let people make up their own minds about the evils of Jim Crow, while minimizing Federal interventions, such as occurred with Orval Faubus and Ike. Both the GOPe and the “New” Left Democrats hated him. It wasn’t to be for him to be elected President, yet his run did make a difference.]

    Rasmussen shows Trump made a 6-9 point jump on Hillary after the debate.

    • Now they’re gone to the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas playbook. It’s one October surprise/bimbo eruption after another and so obvious. No one wants to talk the issues, because it would destroy Hillary. You’ll notice that it was okay for Bill Clinton to harass women–he’s a leftist.


      • cdquarles says:

        Interesting. I note that this pushed the Wiki-leaks stuff out, too. Also forgotten is the misdeeds Hillary’s done from the Watergate hearings to this day and she is getting away with not addressing the rapist she defended and laughed about.
